Thread: Flurry of blows

  1. Default Flurry of blows

    I never realized before that it actually activates when mstriking. My monk has 35 MoC ranks and rank 2 of Flurry. Managed to get 14 attacks off of this one, and 6 of those were from Flurry.

    I can't really say whether this is flurry of blows or not because you don't mention how many critters are in the room, whether or not they've been jabbed already, and the fact that your example here is using mstrike jab.

    But with mstrike, you get a free jab on things that haven't been jabbed previously. 90% guess that's all you're seeing. Not Flurry of blows.

    The "You quickly pivot and follow up with a jab against..." messaging is the Flurry of Blows activating. Learn to read.

    I'm also seeing that your RT is 8 seconds, on mstrike jab. That shouldn't even be possible without like negative agidex. What are your stats like that you're getting those numbers? My mstrike KICK is only 7 seconds, with way more kicks involved.

  5. Default

    Yeah, the pivot thing is flurry.

    My AGI/DEX is 50 at the moment, so I'm only getting -3 from that.

    But yeah, most of thes jabs are rather plinky, of course, but it's nice with all the flares. I just never actually realized it activated on mstrike. Looks like there were 4 creatures there (that's all I should be able to hit with 35 ranks anyhow).

    Makes me curious to see what rank 3 of flurry would look like.

    I'll test it out when I get a chance. I've got a fixskills and cmans are pretty quick to unlearn. Thanks for the agidex update. I was worried it was adding the 2 seconds for a normal flurry jab into the mstrike if you had some agidex. You should definitely get that boosted up. Even one second makes a world of difference. Means you can mstrike kick instead of punch in many cases, and 8 seconds on the jab is way too high. I can focus four kicks and a jab in 7 seconds, 4 punches and a jab in 6. That's small-race high, but it's pretty easy to get yourself to shave off that first couple seconds.

    Edit to add:

    You know what would be neat to see, to give flurry a reason over krynch, would be an ability for flurry on an mstrike to surpass the 10 levels above barrier where you can't tier up. Currently if you UAC anything over 10 above you, you're stuck at decent positioning forever, which just makes your mstrikes jab over and over again, which is super sad.

    I used flurry of blows with flaring/ensorcelled gloves in camps to great success. If there's multiple things in the room a jab at 2 seconds if effective for some quick crowd control.

    That'd definitely be awesome. Crit weighting is essentially wasted on a Monk as I've found (due to the incredibly low kick/punch death crit levels and weighted blows from good/excellent position), but damage weighting could potentially get pretty insane. For maximum effect though I think you'd have to get equally damage weighted brawling weapons to dual wield as well. .150 to your punches is a ton from holding them, but holding the weapons would half your weighting from the gloves unless the weapons also had that weighting. And after all that, it still does nothing to your kicks, but with 40 points of damage weighting on top of .150 extra, who needs kicks?

    Anyway, super expensive proposition to really max out. You'd need two 40 point weapons, 40 point gloves, and if you wanted your kicks boosted as well (gonna need at least some kicks for tier up opportunities regardless), 40 point boots, but if you managed it...holy crap. That'd be sweet.

  10. Default

    Yeah, that's basically what I'm doing here with greater fire vs trolls. I'm sure it'll become progressively less effective as I progress in levels and the grim get hardier. It's still nice cause I get to tier up against everything and fling a bunch of fire around in the process.

    My AGI/DEX is so low because my monk's stats are set to max at cap and he's only 34. He's a halfling, at least, so he's still pretty quick. I could use Burst and shave off another second if I ever thought of it.
